Using the cut stem of a lettuce leaf as a stamp, Bernardino discovers that there are roses in the lettuce. Have you ever seen them?
In this text Bruno Munari plays with vegetables, cutting them in half and covering them in colour: this is how roses can come from salads, trees from cabbages and flowers from tomatoes.
Roses in the salad is one of the books from the Workshop series that describes different working, techniques, from educational to explanatory pamphlets and “poetic” play... With basic explanations and plenty of stimuli, suggestions and maps to get adults and children, teachers and students working together.
This book is also available in English.
